Constantly trying to reduce your attachment to the goods
Those who are attached with material possessions have a lot of problems when they are taken away from them or lost. What you own end up possessing you, not the other way around. Become a person by the minimal needs and you will be much happier.

Become an explorer and view the world as a jungle. Stop by and see the little things as completely unique events. Try something NEW. Get out of your comfort zone and try to experience as much as possible of environments and feel very different. The world has so much to offer, so why not take advantage?
Remember people’s names
so that they feel appreciated, and also to your future advantage: if I ever want something from those same people. To memorize, repeat their name when they arise. Then repeat it in your head a certain number of times until you are sure you have learned. Use their name in conversation as you can, to eliminate any possibility of forgetting. If you still have problems, invent a rhyme with the name: “Mario the antiquarian” or “Marta the seamstress”, etc..
Get in shape!
It ‘s amazing if you think that we have one body, one sole means of functioning, and we are too lazy to take care of ourselves. A fit body inevitably leads to better health, greater confidence and more success in love affairs. I would say that are 3 good reasons to get right fit.
Learn to focus only on the present
The past is immutable, it is pointless to think about it unless it is done to avoid repeating the mistakes made. The future is not a consequence of your actions today. So: learn from the past to do better in the present, so as to succeed in the future.
More specifically, live in THIS moment
Even 10 minutes ago is the past. If you live only in this moment you will always be happy because there is nothing wrong in this fraction of a second.
Smile more often
Every time you turn on a smile on your face your brain releases serotonin, the hormone of happiness. Smiling is the natural aid for happiness. It is a very powerful tool that is used less and less as they get older, when in fact we would need it most. Remember that happiness brings smiles, smiles also lead to happiness.
Hydration is extremely important for overall health. Soda for example has absolutely ZERO nutritional content: it’s like pouring a punch of sugar and syrup into the glass. Instead, fill it with water, the vital supply for excellence. It may seem tasteless if you are an avid drinker of coca-cola, but soon will develop a real addiction. 10 glasses per day is optimal, how many do you usually drink?
Do not take life so seriously!
Learn to laugh at the little things and this whole “affair of existence” will become much easier. Laugh at your mistakes and failures, be thankful to have learned their lesson and do not mess with it again that way. And most importantly, you do things that you like! Life is not strictly business, it can be mixed with pleasure.
Make positive thoughts
When there is a negative thought, stop it immediately by any means necessary. Slapped in the face, yelling something positive or vented in some way. Do whatever it takes to get back to a positive mindset, and as such is essential for happiness and success constant.
I’ll just give you a handful of reasons why this is a must:
Helping people produces a ripple effect. If you help someone feel obligated to help someone else, and so on. A sort of “pass the favor.”
Giving much to others, we grow. It can change you in ways you never imagined.
Your relationship with the person you help become stronger.
It ‘s the most rewarding thing that you can do on this planet. Not only does it feel good physically, but also increases self-esteem.
You will feel authorized to ask that person a favor later when you need help.
Positive Karma (for those who believe).
Because there are a lot of people in this world as well as you.
Assign a specific time each day to the concerns
Meditate on your issues and concerns in that period, in a way that does not distract you during work or moments of pleasure. In this way you will be extremely effective in managing your time and you can avoid to focus on negative thoughts. If you can step aside to your concerns and have the mental strength to avoid going back all the time, you’ll be much happier, day after day.
Be honest at all times
The lies do not bring nothing but trouble. Being known as trustworthy is an excellent feature to maintain, and simple to acquire integrity.
